Independent website Kyokushin Results published its list of the best European Kyokushin fighters for 2018.
Is not surprise that Sensei Valeri Dimitrov is on top in Heavy weight. This is another record in his fighting career: 8 times as number 1 in Europe by Kyokushin Results ranking since 1997, the year Valeri Dimitrov started competing in Bulgaria and after that in 2001 on European Championships (WKO) became on 1st Place in MW (Defeated F. Carpena)… the rest is history.
